The Pioneer lacks bright lights. Yes the headlamps are sufficient in most cases, but a little more illumination never hurt anything.

I bought 4 27W LED lights. Two round ones and two rectangles. The rounds have more of a "flood" effect and the rectangles are more of a "beam". I picked them up on Amazon.com. They were under $100 for all of them together. There are plenty of them to choose from. I suggest you check reviews and base your selection on that.

I mounted the fronts towards the bottom edge of my windshield. Since it's made of Lexan, I just drilled a hole through the window itself and mounted the light bracket with a bolt. I suggest using a lock washer as well.



I drilled the hole a little larger in the brackets for mounting the rear lights. I then used the tail of one of the bolts for the upper roll cage to seat the light on. I used zip ties to secure the wiring to the inner part of the cage for a cleaner install.



The lights are extremely bright for their size and cost. This photo is the front beams. That dumpster is 50-60 yards out.



The rear floods are a little softer in light. Width of projection increases. Dumpster is around 30yds out.



I am very happy with the look and function of the lights.

I like those. I looked at some at Northern Tool and they were EXSPENSIVE! Do you know how many lumens yours are? Sounds like you got a good deal.

I'm surprised you don't get any reflection off the hood. Why did you rule out mounting them above the windshield?
I felt like they were the most out of my line of sight by mounting them where I did and the best protected from tree limbs. The mounts are adjustable too, so you can adjust the it to raise or lower the focal point of the beam.

The rear lights are 1550 lumen each.

And the fronts were only 18w now that I look at it. They are 1360 lumen each. They are $26.09 Amazon prime right now. Just search for 18w led light and they come up.

The rears are $22.99. Search for 27w led light.

Make sure you check the descriptions to get the flood or spots, because both listings look a lot alike.

Do you think there is any chance of cracking the windshield from vibration?
No, I think there is no chance of it cracking. Lexan is about as resistant to cracking as any plastic can be and the lights aren't that heavy.

I find it's pretty hard to even see my hood. Don't think reflection is much of an issue.

What did you use to switch these Moose? And where did you tap into the electric supply?……from the battery?

No, no reflection at all.

Foggy I actually made another post about the aux dash panel I made.

I used Daystar switches that I got on Amazon. I used a fusible link to the positive battery terminal.

Glad to answer any other questions.

Hmm. What if your tractor, car, truck, or whatever other vehicle breaks down and you need a portable light to work on it? Or ! What if your house gets a broken window in the middle of the night. You'd have the perfect portable lights to work on it.

Or add another scenario and then you can justify it . ;)

The lights look great. Do the lights pointed to the front reach our farther than the headlights?
I'd say a great deal more. Just a guess, but I'd say 3 times as far and with a lot more brightness.
